A harvard study finds volunteering can life happier, healthier and more fruitful life by volunteering. The notion of just moving to a warmer climate and relaxing is not the answer to a fruitful, healthy life after your career.
"The nation's 77 million post-World War II "baby boomers" can live longer, happier lives by trading leisure in their golden years for volunteer community service, according to a study released this week by the Harvard School of Public Health and the MetLife Foundation."

"For those baby boomers who head to the health club each week, civic engagement in retirement is the next health club in terms of maintenance of fitness, good health and longevity," Winsten told a conference of experts convened to discuss the implications of the Harvard study."
